The Village of Taunton Mills Review
3800 Brock Sreet North, Whitby, Ontario, L1R 3A5
This lives up to the title of village much more than residence or seniors' home. The layout of the building follows very much from the idea of a small town, its central town square holding a number of "shops" to browse and meet up with friends. Places you'll find in the village centre (a commons area) include a library, a theatre, a café, a general store and a pub. Unlike most Ontario towns, though, there's never any cold weather or rain. It has to be seen to be believed.
Levels of care available in the Village of Taunton Mills range from independent to assisted living. Assistance in Schlegel Villages does not apply a cookie-cutter approach, however. The individual needs of residents are looked at, and care offered is resident-centred. The attitude of staff here is not that seniors live where the staff works, but "we work in your home."
You'll love it at Taunton Mills if you want to improve your social life, if you miss that old small town feeling of yesteryear. You'll love the wide variety of activities to choose from, including exercising with friends, reading in the library, horseshoes, movie nights, or just hanging out on the patio in the summer. Onsite pampering includes a beauty salon and barber shop.

What people say about life in this community
My mother was in three retirement homes over the past year and [she now has a home] in the Long Term Care Facility on the Perry Wing. Everyday is special here. [Everyone here is] empathetic, professional, knowledgeable and friendly … They all work together so well. I am thoroughly impressed and would recommend the Village Of Taunton Mills to everyone.
This is a great place to live. I visit a few times a month and am impressed every time. The residents are happy, you can tell.
When you have friends who you chat, laugh with, talk with... that is true happiness.
A five star quality retirement home.
